European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Willie Coffey

I had finished, convener.



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Willie Coffey

That is where the power to decide the matter would rest.



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Willie Coffey

Ultimately, it is for the United Kingdom Government to determine whether it goes along the lines that you are suggesting or whether it changes its view, which may happen after May, for example.



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Willie Coffey

I appreciate what you are saying time and again, but where can we see that written down as a matter of UK Government policy?



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Willie Coffey

In September, one of your colleagues, a chap called Earl Howe, who was a UK health minister at the time—I do not know whether he still is—said quite clearly that trade talks must not exclude access to healthcare. He went on to say that exempting health would not be in the interests of British pharmaceutical firms. Who is right—you or him?



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Willie Coffey

Well, I am certainly not going to get into that territory, but can I refer you—



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Willie Coffey

Yes, but to be absolutely clear, you said that public health services are excluded. I would expect to see that point put clearly within the mandate; otherwise, what is the status of the mandate? Perhaps that explains why there is confusion and concern across the United Kingdom and across Europe about the issue.



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Willie Coffey

Good morning, Lord Livingston. I want to open up a further discussion on the health issue. You said that publicly funded health services are excluded. Where in the negotiating mandate that was agreed in June 2013 does it specifically exclude health services from being part of the TTIP negotiations?



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Willie Coffey

Perhaps I can ask your colleagues for their views. What is the policy on TTIP access to health services in your territory?



European and External Relations Committee 19 February 2015 : Thursday, February 19, 2015
Willie Coffey

I am sorry to interrupt, but I was asking about health services only. I know that there are many wider issues about TTIP.
